Slow Cooker Chicken Stew


This is again another lazy man's dish.  Using the slow cooker can really help when you're busy with other household chores.  Just dump all the ingredients in the pot, give them a good stir, turn on the power and wait patiently.....I did mine at noon and it was smelling good after 4 hours on high heat.  I used some Korean bean paste in this stew and the chicken was so tender, even toothless senior citizens would be able to enjoy it :)

  4. Cheah, your Chicken Stew looks so delicious! I have had a bit of a disaster cooking chicken using slow cooker. The chicken was overcooked and was all mushy! I think I should not leave it for too long.

    1. Depending on whether farm chicken or free range chicken, need to monitor the cooking time.

    1. On the contrary, it's been hot, hot, super hot and hazy these days. The slow cooker really comes in handy when it's just too hot to cook in the kitchen. Just let the slow cooker do the work for you :)

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ......
